Subject: RE: BS: Is Doonesbury going too far?
The problem here, janie, is that the lottery was introduced well into the war... It was not the system until the war was 6 years old... Lots of folks used every conceivable deferment to stay out... ***Then*** came the lottery well toward the end of the war and some folks got good numbers and gave up their other strategies...

I know all this very well... I was draft avoidance counselor...
